The Bizarre World of Florida

Woman bodybuilder dubbed “Little Monster” freaks out at party September 16, 2014

Dani Reardon screamed when police arrived.

sfl-flduh-bodybuilder-little-monster-20140915-001Then the award-winning female bodybuilder, described online as “jacked, vascular, & ripped,” cracked the windshield of her boyfriend’s pickup with a kick, police said.

Later, the 24-year-old slammed her head repeatedly into the cage of an Edgewood patrol vehicle as she was taken to the Orange County Jail, a report said.

Reardon — whose body reeked of alcohol — was charged with resisting arrest without violence and battery (domestic violence) early Sunday, police said.

The alleged victim was her live-in boyfriend of three years, Ian Schofield, who said he didn’t want to press charges.

Reardon, also known online as “Little Monstar” is a pro competitor for the International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness, meaning she’s won at least one regional contest in a specific weight class.

That happened in November 2012, when she was declared a Class A Winner at the National Physique Committee competition in Atlanta.

“Danielle has very pretty lines,” the judges said, according to the NPC website. “She needs to improve her conditioning at the next level.”

On her website, Reardon expresses her love for posing and optimism for the future, saying she is on her way to the “big stage.” But she went to the big house after police got a disturbance call just before 2 a.m. Sunday in Edgewood, south of downtown Orlando, at a house on Oak Lynn Drive.

 

911: Have food, no fridge, man repeatedly tells dispatches

A 60-year-old Fort Walton Beach man is charged with calling 911 eight times in two hours to complain that he had food but no refrigerator.

sfl-flduh-911-fridge-20140915-001Fort Walton Beach Police officers were called to the Chestnut Avenue residence on Sept. 5, according to the arrest report. Richard Wild had called 911 because he was “upset because he has food and not fridge.”

He told the county operator that his phone only dialed 911, so he was going to keep calling, the report said. When the officers got to Wild’s apartment, he said he called 911 because he was upset that the property manager for his apartment had not installed a refrigerator in his unit.

He said he was aware it was not an emergency but “defiantly” said he didn’t care, according to the report. He said he would keep calling 911 until he “received satisfaction” with his complaint about the landlord.

He admitted that he knew it was a civil matter and the police couldn’t do anything, the report said. His call log showed that he had called 911 eight separate times between 12:45 p.m. and 2:20 p.m.

He admitted that none of the calls were emergencies, according to the report.

Wild is charged with misuse of 911.

 

Woman Set Boyfriend Ablaze, Claimed He Was Participating In “Fire Challenge” Stunt September 11, 2014

A Florida woman arrested for setting her boyfriend on fire after dousing him with rubbing alcohol claimed that the victim had been participating in the so-called fire challenge when “things went awry,” police report.

necoleandmarcosAccording to cops, Marcos Fuentes suffered burns to twenty percent of his body early Sunday morning in the Bradenton home he shares with Necole Stephens, 35.

As Fuentes was being loaded into an emergency medical helicopter, he told Manatee County Sheriff’s Officer deputies that Stephens became jealous when she saw him texting on his phone. Fuentes added that Stephens “threw ‘medical’ alcohol all over him before igniting his clothes on fire with a lighter.”

Stephens, who was not home when cops arrived, was later contacted by phone by deputies, who reported that Stephens claimed Fuentes “was participating in the ‘alcohol challenge’ and things went awry.” Stephens added that she left the residence because she was “scared.”

Stephens, investigators noted, declined repeated requests to return to the home and provide “proof that she did nothing wrong.” She was subsequently located at another Bradenton residence and arrested. Stephens is locked up in lieu of $15,000 on a felony aggravated assault charge.

Fuentes suffered second-degree burns “on his left side from his shoulder down past his waist,” reported deputies. Stephens and Fuentes are pictured above in a Facebook photo uploaded to her page in late-June.

The “fire challenge,” which has been popularized by Facebook and YouTube videos, involves a participant pouring rubbing alcohol on their skin and then setting the liquid on fire. The flames are then supposed to be quickly extinguished. However, many individuals have suffered serious burns as a result of the dangerous online trend.

 

It looks like this dude wanted to egg-zact some revenge September 8, 2014

A 58-year-old man may end up with egg on his face — for allegedly throwing eggs at neighbors’ cars, Clermont police say.

sfl-the-yolks-on-him-20140905-001Steven Rosa was charged with three counts of criminal mischief for allegedly tossing eggs at vehicles over a dispute about parking in the street on Muir Circle.

A neighbor said this has happened 11 times, causing damage to her home and both her vehicles, according to police. The victim estimated a new paint job would cost $1,600.

She told police it happened again early Wednesday morning and she had it on video after buying some equipment to catch the egg-thrower.

She sat in another car with a video camera, police said.

“(The victim) stated she observed an unknown male at the driver’s side window, in his mid 40s with a military style crew cut, launch an egg out of the window toward her black Mercury 2002 Cougar, causing damage,” the police report said.

She stated the car came out of Rosa’s driveway. She also later identified Rosa in a photo lineup.

Further investigation revealed another neighbor received an anonymous letter claiming it was against the homeowner’s association rules to park in the street.

“It is very frustrating when someone comes up the block and you have to stop and try to pull over to avoid hitting each other,” the letter said, according to the police report. “I can’t believe you first three homes think you are above the law.”

Police also obtained phone records of Rosa allegedly calling the association several times a day to complain about the matter.

But, the association told police there was no such rule against parking in the street, nor is it a violation of Clermont laws.

Rosa declined comment.

 

Was this dude was thinking outside the bun when he focused his attention on a woman’s buns? September 3, 2014

sfl-flduh-groping-taco-bell-20140902-001A Bradenton man was charged with battery Saturday after grabbing a victim’s left butt check at a Taco Bell drive-thru window, according to the Bradenton Police Department.

Guess road rage is evolving into a beat n’ treat event August 28, 2014

Filed under: Abuse,Bad Temper,Controversy,Dispute,Dumb,Fight,OK Then .....,Stupid,Unusual,WTF? — floridaduh @ 2:02 pm

A minor traffic accident erupted into a stabbing in South Tampa on Wednesday.

sfl-flduh-road-rage-stabbed-first-aid-20140827-001In an unusual twist, police say the man with the knife immediately began to perform first aid on the man with the wound, who survived.

Robert Suarez, 36, was a passenger in his girlfriend’s Audi going north on MacDill Avenue near Bay to Bay Boulevard, police said.

Traffic stopped suddenly and the Audi was rear-ended by a Toyota Avalon driven by Steven Baker, 22, police said. Both vehicles pulled into the parking lot of Bay Oaks apartments.

Baker and one of his two passengers, Torre Worthy, 23, began arguing with Suarez, police said.

Worthy began punching Suarez, who would later be treated for cuts to his head, wrist, legs and knees, police said.

Suarez hit the concrete and Baker joined in the fight, kicking Suarez in the head, said Tampa police spokeswoman Laura McElroy.

That’s when Suarez stabbed Baker but immediately began to put pressure on the wound to stop it from bleeding, McElroy said.

“He felt he was outnumbered and he had to defend himself, but he felt terrible about injuring his attacker,” she said.

McElroy wasn’t sure of the location of Baker’s wound. He was taken to Tampa General Hospital. His condition was initially described as serious but later described as good.

The investigation was expected to continue, with no immediate announcement of charges.

 

Sexually spurned woman caused man’s neck to ‘leak’ August 27, 2014

If Shakieria Anquanette Shan Long screams she wants to have sex, you better watch out.

sfl-flduh-spurned-neck-stab-leak-20140826-001A man identified by police as a witness told investigators that he, Long, the victim and others were “barbecuing and drinking.” The witness said he got a bit intoxicated and lay down on a couch in the 1400 block of Avenue J.That’s a conclusion one could draw following Long’s arrest Aug. 12 in Fort Pierce after the apparent object of her amorous outburst got stabbed in the neck, according to a recently released Fort Pierce police report.

He said that after a few minutes, the victim came in with Long, 22, following.

“The suspect (Long) was screaming that she wanted the victim to have sex with her,” the report states. “The victim told her no and to go back where she had been all day and have sex.”

Long eventually went in the victim’s room. Not long after that, she called for the witness, saying she stabbed the victim and that he was “leaking,” or bleeding.

The witness held a towel to the victim’s neck, and Long said she was sorry.

The witness and victim walked toward the witness’ home. Long ran after them and began punching the victim in the face.

The victim told police he didn’t want to have sex with Long because she’d been imbibing. He didn’t want to pursue charges.

He said she stabbed him in the neck, but that she didn’t mean to.

Long, of the 800 block of North 20th Street in Fort Pierce, was arrested on a felony battery charge.
